This taxonomic treatment includes all Cannaceae of the world. Emphasis is on the 10 species growing in the wild in the Neotropics. Included are chapters on the history of the taxonomy of the family and genera, and on relationships of higher level taxa. Data are provided on vegetative morphology as well as on floral morphology and floral biology. Structure of the inflorescence, the ovary and ovules, fruit and seeds, germination and seedlings are treated in detail. Finally a chapter on uses and…

Life Cycle in Natural Populations of Canna indica L. from Argentina
TLDR
Field work carried out during several seasons demonstrated that, after removal of plant populations by human action, seeds germinate easily in the substrate assisted by external factors such as sun radiation, dew and rainfall distributed throughout the year.
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIP AMONG DIFFERENT VARIETIES AND SPECIES OF CANNA USING MOLECULAR MARKERS
TLDR
The dendrogram based on the contained data of both RAPD and ISSR showed that Canna paniculata (C6) was always in a far correlation with the other species and varieties of Canna in this study.
Evolution in African Marantaceae - Evidence from Phylogenetic, Ecological and Morphological Studies
Abstract The Marantaceae (∼530 spp.) are one of the most species rich families within the order Zingiberales which incites the search for evolutionary factors favoring speciation. A positive
Morfología, nueva distribución geográfica de "Canna amabilis" en la Argentina, afinidades y diferencias con otras especies del género
TLDR
Besides the new records for the country, studies of vegetative morphology and pollen have been carried out in order to characterize C. amabilis in more detail and to analyze affinities and differences with other species of the genus, such as C. glauca, C. lineata and C. indica.
Floral vasculature and ontogeny in Canna indica
TLDR
The results indicate that the labellum of C. indica have incorporated two androecial members from both outer and inner whorls, rather than three, one or half member, as previously suggested by morphologists of Cannaceae flowers.
THE EFFECT OF FUNGAL ACTIVITY ON PHOTOSYNTHETIC PARAMETERS OF DIFFERENT CANNA CULTIVARS UNDER FIELD CONDITIONS
TLDR
The infection ofCanna leaves by pathogenic fungi has negatively affected the intensity of photosynthesis, transpiration, stomatal conductance and sub-stomatal CO2 concentration and it was largely related to the degree of infestation of specified varieties of canna.
Odoardo Beccari’s Malesian herbarium in Florence: the disclosure of a hidden treasure. 1. Zingiberales
TLDR
An in-depth inventory and study of Odoardo Beccari's Malesian Herbarium aimed to provide an exhaustive account of its content to the scientific community, to trace every referenced type specimen and to select the lectotypes when still lacking.
Characterization of a highly divergent Sugarcane mosaic virus from Canna indica L. by deep sequencing
TLDR
This study identified SCMV as the major agent causing the prevalent mosaic symptom in canna plants in Beijing and its genomic and biological characterizations were further explored.
Humedales construidos con plantas ornamentales para el tratamiento de materia orgánica y nutrientes contenidos en aguas servidas (Constructed wetlands with ornamental plants for removal of organic matter and nutrients contained in sewage)
Constructed wetlands are a viable sewage treatment in rural areas because of its low cost of operation and simplicity in management technology. Moreover it is noteworthy that the efficiency of
TREATMENT OF VARIOUS DISEASES BY CANNA INDICA L. - A PROMISING HERB
TLDR
This review attempts to illuminate the available literature on C. indica (L.) with respect to ethnobotany, chemical constituents, and summary of numerous pharmacological activities.

THE GENUS CANNA IN NORTHERN SOUTH AMERICA
TLDR
The present work has been inspired by the problems pertaining to the genus Canna as occurring in Suriname and was expanded to cover northern South America, South to the Amazon River, and includes also some West Indian material.
Inaperturate Pollen in Monocotyledons
TLDR
The characters of omniaperturate pollen are adaptations that potentially increase the germination efficiency of the pollen, and both types sometimes occur in environments where pollen is not subject to desiccation and, thus, may remain viable with reduced exines.
Floral organogenesis in five genera of the Marantaceae and in Canna (Cannaceae)
TLDR
The paired flowers of all species of the Marantaceae studied, except Monotagma plurispicatum, are produced through the division of an apical meristem with a tunica-corpus structure, and this pattern is interpreted as a variation on the more generalized pattern of inner androecial formation found in the other genera.

Germination of Achira Seed (Canna sp.) Approximately 550 Years Old
TLDR
Samples from bones of cameloids in the upper strata of garbage from the site were taken for carbon-14 analysis, and they were dated at about 530 yr (AD 1420), implying that the city was developed before AD 1420.

Flora of Guatemala
TLDR
The flora of Guatemala is the richest and most lixersified of any in Central America for a variety of reasons and is home to a combination of varied climatic, physiographic, and edaphic conditions.
